Several fence quotes later, which varied sometimes as much as $4,000, we finally decided. We met with the landscaper and he wanted to get started the very next day... Which didnt leave us much time to talk to our neighbors that we share one side of the fence with. We wanted to make them aware that we were going to be tearing that fence down and we also wanted to try to talk them into sharing the cost of that portion with us. It only seemed fair since they get the benefit of using it too, right? What do you think?
The Lean: The Oleander has gotten so big that its pushing out the fence. (In the alley that's how we find our house though! The fence thats leaning out is how we know it's ours!)
Pretty rough looking and damaged.
The railroad ties retaining wall is falling apart and spewing these mystery bricks. The bricks were left by the previous owners I'm guessing and were now falling out of the backyard thanks to the dogs digging.
One culprit caught on film: The Oleander
(If you look close enough you can see our neighbors nice new-ish fence in the background, they must hate their view out of their back gate.)
